I was Eng along the way in my career. Also served as Combat Systems Officer on an LA class, nuke JO on a boomer. Trident XO and 688 command (some of what we did was better than sex) wrapped things up. Not having a politcally correct bone in my body I knew flag officer was not in my future so I retired after 24 yrs.
